“Being yourself is a continuous effort. There is always another expectation placed upon you, another person pulling you toward their preferences, another nudge from society to act a certain way. It’s a daily battle to be yourself, not merely what the world wants you to be.” – James Clear

Building Resilient Engagement and Self-Determination: Two Foundational Principles for Managing Remote/Hybrid Teams:  Front of mind for every leader these days is ensuring employees are engaged, productive, and healthy whether they are working remote, in-office, or hybrid.  By training your managers to focus support on three specific psychological needs (backed by 40 years of behavioral science), a deep, productive, and resilient engagement emerges naturally for all employees, no matter where they are or what specific challenges they face. Better still, employees themselves are an empowered part of the process, drawing them closer to their work and to their teams, even at a distance.
